After a false start back in 2003, it looks like Neil Armstrong's life story -- and specifically an adaptation of First Man: The Life of Neil Armstrong by NASA historian James R. Hansen -- might finally make its way to the screen. Originally, Clint Eastwood was slated to direct the film for Warner Bros., but now the rights have been sold to Universal, and Nicole Perlman (who also has a project about the 1986 Space Shuttle disaster in the works) is writing the screenplay. No word from Variety about whether Eastwood is still eyeing the project, but since he sold away the rights to the novel, I assume the answer is no.
